Caipirinha Bar at Cabana Brixton

Squaremeal Review of Caipirinha Bar at Cabana Brixton ?

The Victorian basement of Britain’s first purpose-built department store – the now-defunct Bon Marché – provides the unlikely setting for this blast of Brazilian sunshine. The Caipirinha Bar is a lively standalone lounge attached to the Brixton branch of Cabana, the South American street-food chain. A beach-bum slacker vibe is engendered by bright kitsch decor, loud graffiti, surf boards and recycled furniture (packing crates as tables, Castrol oil drums as tub chairs). Try the classic Rio cachaça cocktail in various fruity flavours or order boozy batidas, cooling coladas, dessert cocktails, twisted Bellinis and tropical hurricanes such as Carmen Miranda and Red Parrot – juicy at £7.95. Brahma on tap, Brazilian craft beers Devassa and Itaipava, and modest wine from £4.50 a glass go with snacks of gloopy guacamole with corn chips, or crispy, melted cheese ‘pastels’. DJs spin electro-samba, bossa and boogaloo until late at this Copacabana carnival block-party.

    Dancing In High Heels :: Dancing In High Heels CABANA BRASIL BRIXTON

    I do love a visit down to Brixton every now and again, especially on the weekend when there&s a lively and buzzy vibe.
    This was my first visit to Cabana - they have a few branches scattered across London and the Brixton branch opened just a few months ago. The interior is bright and colourful, which suits the vibe and feel of the area, with rustic wooden floors and furniture, and sofas lined with rugged denim material. There is an open plan kitchen down one side where succulent skewers are cooked over an open fire pit.

    Her Favourite Food | London Food & Restaurant Review Blog: January Detox at Redemption, Notting Hill :: Her Favourite Food Cabana Restaurant and Caipirinha Bar

    Although not typically swanky, Cabana Restaurant and Caipirinha Bar will be remembered for its interiors as much as its food. This right, colourful and spacious restaurant has high ceilings, modern designed lights with a beaded curtain which featured a design of the Christ the Redeemer statue.Would I Want Seconds?
    When we arrived a friendly waiter welcomed us and guided us to the seated area, I immediately noticed the bright and characteristic decor as it gave me a much needed boost of energy!
    I asked the waiter to recommend a cocktail and he suggested the traditional caipirinha (&6.95). The cocktail was well...

    Musings from the girl next shore :: The Girl Next Shore Cabana Brixton

    Rio de Janeiro has always been on my travel bucket list but until the day I actually see the place, I&m happy to live the dream through capoeira and Brazilian food in London whenever I can. Luckily, I was invited to try some Brazilian fare last week.
    Cabana opened last quarter in Brixton, in the now defunct Bon Marche building. The new branch is spacious and seemingly buzzing. It&s bigger than expected and immediately I was drawn to its beautifully decorated relaxed interior. You get a feel it&s a place you would want to chill out with friends - and it&s large enough to accommodate a lot of group bookings for...
